The decline of the Third Republic, 1914-1938 by Philippe Bernard( Book )

7 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a detailed account of the Third Republic in France between the outbreak and conduct of the First World War and the fall of Leon Blum's 'Front Populaire' soon after Hitler's invasion and annexation of Austria in 1938. Following the trauma of war, France slipped into the 'era of illusions' which, despite the comparative prosperity of the 1920s, led to the slump and the severe social and economic unrest of the 1930S. The short-lived experiment of Blum's 'Front Populaire' gave way to more conservatively based ministries, but by 1938 a new common enemy began to draw together the political opinion of the country

Reshaping defence diplomacy : new roles for military cooperation and assistance by Andrew Cottey( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last decade there have been major changes in patterns of international defence diplomacy. Defence diplomacy -- peacetime military cooperation and assistance -- has traditionally been used for realpolitik purposes of strengthening allies against common enemies. Since the early 1990s, however, the Western democracies have increasingly used defence diplomacy for a range of new purposes. These include strategic engagement with former or potential enemies, in particular Russia and China, encouraging multilateral regional cooperation, supporting the democratisation of civil-military relations and assisting states in developing peacekeeping capabilities. This Adelphi Paper analyses the new defence diplomacy and the policy challenges and dilemmas it poses. The new defence diplomacy runs alongside the old and there are tensions between the two, in particular between the new goal of promoting democracy and the old imperative of supporting authoritarian allies. These tensions cannot easily be resolved, but external defence diplomacy assistance is likely to play a continuing role in supporting conflict prevention, the reform and democratisation of armed forces and the development of peacekeeping capabilities
Britain and the Maastricht negotiations by Anthony Forster( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony Forster examines the British government's negotiation of the Treaty on European Union (the Maastricht Treaty) which took place between December 1990 and December 1991. He provides a detailed account of both strands of the negotiations, the Intergovernmental Conference on Political Union (IGC-PU) and the Intergovernmental Conference on Economic and Monetary Union (IGC-EMU). On the basis of documentary and interview-based evidence of leading participants from Britain and Europe, he casts doubt on the claim that the government won the negotiations game, set and match and analyses the enormous party-management problems and international pressures that John Major had to balance on succeeding Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minister

Armed forces and society in Europe by Anthony Forster( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifteen years have elapsed since the end of the Cold War - at least in the West - and, since then, the role of the armed services as well as the relationships between military and society have been transformed. Anthony Forster provides a wide-ranging and perceptive analysis of these changes blending insights from theories in military sociology and political science as well as the most recent findings of empirical research. He compares and contrasts the experiences of Western and post-Communist Europe and provides a lucid and lively discussion that will be of interest to both scholars and policy practitioners in the broad field of defence studies. Undergraduate and postgraduate students and teachers will find it invaluable."--Professor Christopher Dandeker, Department of War Studies, King's College London, UK 'This book provides the reader with a thorough analysis of recent transformations of civil-military relations in both Western and Eastern European societies. In the context of post Cold War and post 9/11 environment, Anthony Forster has written a truly comprehensive study about changing domestic and international roles of the armed forces. Academics will be inspired whereas policy-makers will be sobered by reading this genuinely innovative and informative volume.' - Dr. Hans Born, Senior Fellow, Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces 'New Civil-Military Relations in Europe is a vital contribution to the dialogue about 'the postmodern military'. Anthony Forster, a leader of a new generation of European scholars of the military and society, builds on earlier scholarship and extends the analyses to a wide variety of cases. Along the way he unearths a wealth of useful data. The book has a well developed theoretical focus, which academicians will appreciate, but it is also well written and accessible to a lay audience. I highly recommend it for personal and professional libraries and for use as a textbook in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in civil-military relations.' - Professor John Allen Williams, Loyola University Chicago, USA, Chair and President, Inter-University Seminar on Armed Forces and Society

The European Union in South East Asia : continuity and change in turbulent times by Anthony Forster( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article looks at the creation of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and its impact on European Union-South East Asian relations. It suggests that as with other regions of the world, the EU uses framework agreements to regulate contact with other international actors, and it argues that the EU's renewed interest in the region is driven by three principal concerns: a need to meet the challenges of the post-Cold War period by extending structured contact to new interlocutors beyond ASEAN; a need to restate the EU's credentials as a stakeholder in the region; and a new interest in defining acceptable economic and human rights standards as a precondition of privileged contact with the EU. Next, the analysis highlights the reasons why it is unlikely that ASEM leads to a quantitative shift in engagement.--SCAD summary
